Pat Murray and Peter Sidlaukas’ New York imprint Bronze 56K is a major player in the skateboarding scene, and for its latest collaborative effort it has been enlisted by DC Shoes to bring back one of its most renowned ’90s skate sneakers, the Clocker 2.

Like the duo’s 2020 collaboration which saw Bronze 56K rework the DC Shoes Lukoda, this partnership presents the Clocker 2 in its original form, serving nostalgia and authenticity for those who have a soft spot for the skateboarding sneaker. Made to its OG specification, the Clocker 2 re-release comes with no added bulkiness or body reworks, instead opting for collaborative markings that distinguish this retro reissue from the pairs of the ’90s.

As a result, we find three outdoors-inspired colorways — one in teal with gray and orange, another in gold with black and teal, and a final pair in royal blue and black — with each sporting dual branding. For example, Bronze 56K’s logo adorns the tongue tag while DC Shoes gets an overt mention on the heel cup, and more of the former’s name can be found printed onto the insoles.

The heritage footwear style is known for its durability and class-leading functionality, making the Clocker 2 one of the most indestructible shoes to ever be skated in. This is likely to be the case for Bronze 56K’s effort, as the shoes are of course designed to be skated in — hard.

Complementing the release of the shoes is a collaborative pack of socks, a skate backpack and two T-shirts, one of which reads “MY OTHER SHOES: COURT GRAFFIK,” a shoe that has been given a slipper update as part of this release.

The Bronze 56K x DC Shoes collaboration is set to drop on August 6 at select retailers globally and on DC Shoes’ website. Take a look at the John Shanahan-starring lookbook above.
